The pacifier controversy

by Juliemara

There is some controversy out there about how and when and if a pacifier should be used for soothing an infant. Some say that if the baby is sucking then they are not talking, or that it causes orthodontic problems later on, or it’s a bandaid on a broken bone. All I know is that while I had mixed feelings about this peace making little piece of plastic, it’s working for us, day and night, even as it falls out and the whimpers start again, we persist, putting the pacifier back in place for the fifthteenth time, hoping this will be the time that is sticks until that baby is fast asleep. I even broke down and bought the wubanubs, a soothie pacifier attached to a tiny stuffed animal that is supposed to help hold the pacifier in place. We agreed to use this one only during the day for those of you who might have been concerned about us letting our babies sleep with a stuffed animal on their face.

    Ahh.. the classic pacifier debate. The benefits are being proven while the risks are being minimized in the research. I am not saying a three year old should walk around with a binky in their mouth but for your girls I think its appropriate. I’m just sayin’.
